Unexpected Homecoming

Unexpected Homecoming - James A. Henderson

This made me want to watch Big Eden again, because this is pretty much an ultra-condensed version of that story, with some pretty obvious differences. I enjoyed the conspiring grandma and her friends, and wished we'd seen more of them. I thought the miscommunication to keep the guys separated for most of the story was forced and it was pretty obvious what was going on. Once again, there's more telling than showing here, but it manages a better balance between the two than most stories in this event.
